Journalist Sam Walker and her mother

After her mother was diagnosed with lung cancer and given just a few months to live, former BBC journalist Sam Walker found herself in a camper van with her mother, traveling around Western Australia with no real plan. 

It was both a challenging and moving journey that Walker recently wrote about in the Guardian. And when she came into our studios recently to talk more about it, she said there were also times she thought, it was a little nuts. 

Sam Walker is the producer and host of the podcast Desert Diaries, about her move from England here to Phoenix, Arizona.
